1956 Pontiac Laurentian Carpet Question


I am looking for carpet for my 1956 Laurentian 4dr Sedan with bech seats. Does anyone know what american or chevy cars would have the same carpet for this car. I have not seen a site that has the Canadian models listed for their carpet choices. I have sent an email to NOS Reproductions to see what they have. I sure would like to know what other car carpets match mine so I can see what deals that might be out there. Any info to help me get carpet for this car would be greatly appreciated. I finally got my car on the road and would like to have carpet so it doesn't seem like I'm riding in a tin can.

Chevrolet of same vintage will be identical to your Laurentian. Lots and lots of reproduction (or upgraded) carpet sets for 1955-56 Chevy's, makes it easy to shop around!

There are generally two types of carpet sets. One set to match the original weave carpet is vey expensice at around $400 tax in.  The second type is a different weave and looks good and sells for around $150  a set. For a driver the second type would be fine.

Taylor, what companies are you getting those prices from? I agree that the cheaper the better for a driver.

NOS has carpets, the more expensive carpet set is from CARS in Michigian. Any 55-57 Chev parts supplier has them available. Just find the nearest location Chevy 55-57 parts dealer near you to get the lowest shipping cost or even if possible pick it up.
